The medical term “otoplasty” refers to a surgical operation that reshapes and repositions the ears. Many people have ears that stick out or are oddly positioned in a way that may be embarrassing. An otoplasty or “ear job” is a cosmetic procedure that contours the ear cartilage to safely reposition the ears to be closer to the head and look more attractive.
An otoplasty is a safe and virtually pain-free procedure that can be performed on children age six and up. The otoplasty works by subtly reshaping the cartilage in the ears to re-align them into a more aesthetically pleasing position closer to the head.
By the time a child reaches the age of six, the ears have achieved about 90 to 95% of their final size. Because of this fact, the otoplasty procedure can be considered when a child reaches this age. Otoplasty procedures can also be safely performed on adolescents or adults who want to reposition the angle of their ears.
